Reviewed 13 April 2012

We had a wonderful week at the White Sands Cove! The property is beautiful and very well-maintained. It is the perfect place for a quiet getaway. The staff is very helpful and inviting. Marlon took great care of us throughout our stay. Yemen and Junior took us on two fantastic boat trips: fishing at Mexico Rocks and snorkeling at Holchan. We plan to stay at White Sands on our next trip to Belize.

White Sands Cove was a great choice for our recent vacation in Belize. Marlon took great care of us. It was wonderful to have him arrange fishing guides for us. The accommodations are very spacious and modern. The dive shop on site is a real plus and the young men who manage it are a joy.

The taxi stop at a grocery upon our arrival was a real convenience. Grocery delivery is also available. Also don't miss out on the food available at the pool bar and grill. It is GREAT!

We had a fabulous time on Ambergris Caye and would return to WSC again.

This was a great family vacation! We were looking for a quiet place, within biking or walking distance to a small town, where we could relax and also have fun things to do if we chose. We wanted a place that wasn't super 'touristy' and we wanted to steer clear of a typical spring break environment. White Sands Cove provided all of that! It is a beautiful property and a great location! We rode bikes into town several times for dinner and shopping. The staff on the property is great and we also loved the little dogs. :) Marlon, the resident manager, was always very helpful and full of information. Junior and his brother, Yemen, in the Dive Shop were great. Junior took us out to snorkel on the reef and swim with the sharks and stingrays and Yemin took our boys kayaking out to the reef to spearfish, a first for them. We loved it and would highly recommed White Sands Cove for a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We slept great while we were there and came home refreshed!

I felt valued from the the point we first arrived at White Sands Cove. We were greeted at the dock by Marlon, who wheel barreled our luggage right up to the room! The waterfront condo was fully furnished and comfortable with chairs on the balcony to sit and relax while overlooking the ocean. I was impressed by the beautiful, well kept grounds and I already had my spot picked out in the nearest hammock. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly without being intrusive.

Marlon knew just the right excursions for me to go on with my limited physical abilities, which made our trips to the Mayan ruins and snorkeling amazing. Junior, the dive master, was so knowledgeable about where to go and what to see on our snorkel trip.

We enjoyed our walks up and down the beach to local restaurants, when we weren't spending time at the poolside grill. We took several trips into downtown San Pedro, either on the water taxi or by golf cart. The bumpy roads by golf cart became a fun adventure. Ambergris Caye has so much to offer, and I would have no reservations about recommending White Sands Cove to anyone.

Our journey to Belize afforded us the opportunity to select from many accommodations on San Pedro Island. We found the perfect place for us. White Sands Cove was small enough to provide an intimate gathering place without the large crowds and still provide all the amenities for a perfect vacation. The staff was friendly and helpful, the pool was our intimate gathering place, and the location on the inner waterway made it easy access for our excursions. From our water taxi to the dock to arranging for excursions, snorkeling and diving we enjoyed it all. If we ever want a place to go to relax, unwind and enjoy San Pedro, White Sands Cove is the place.

We just returned from our third stay at WSC. We were with a group of 11 and as always it was wonderful. The resort was impeccably kept the pool was pristine and the service was wonderful! Marlon has been there all three times we have stayed and he is on the ball! He makes sure everything you need is taken care of! We swam with the sharks, catamaraned to Caye caulker, fished and had a fabulous lobster beach BBQ for valentines day! Everything was exactly as promised. I will tell all my friends that WSC is the only place to stay while in San Pedro! Thank you for an awesom vacation! Oh, and I dearly miss Riley, Chica and Chico the resident and neighboring dogs! We will definitely be back.

The reviews we read here prior to our trip to Belize were very helpful in our settling on this choice. We would stay here again; all that was promised and was needed was available. The rooms were very nice, and well furnished with what we needed. For those traveling to Ambergris Caye, do be prepared to pay well for the privilege. You must consider the high price of air, water and ground transportation and tours as well as the 4 star prices on food. But then, it was all quite worth it to stay where you get your money's worth. We would recommend WSC.
